Using the Placeholder Geocoder at SFO Museum

Title image for Using the Placeholder Geocoder at SFO Museum

This is a long and technical blog post. The short version is: It is now easy, possible and inexpensive to install and operate a “coarse” geocoding service, with global coverage, support for multiple languages and stable permanent identifiers using openly licensed data, both locally and in ☁️ the cloud ☁️. We’ve made some additional tools to complement this reality and waded through some of the muck of modern software development so you don’t have to.
